The Drawing Of The Three by Stephen King

  1. 20
    The Talisman by Stephen King (Valjeanne)
    Valjeanne: A real page-turner collaboration between Peter Straub and Stephen King! More "flipping" between alternate dimensions, shape-shifting good guys and bad guys, and a hero you'll love. :-)

Three doors on a beach, three persona. Well done. I'll continue this series. ( )
  br77rino | May 27, 2017 |
I definitely preferred the first book over this one - I miss the desert because it gave the novel a western feel. Here we have a monotonous beach filled with characters that I can't stand. My favorite characters were probably the lobstrosities, actually. Roland is a dink with almost no personality and I don't really think I'm supposed to like him, but he's not interesting to truly hate either.

I felt like this book was a 400-something (or whatever) page setup for the next book and because I didn't like any of the new characters I met, I didn't give a shit about their entire life stories. I also don't like the way King has a tendency to get vulgar when it comes to bodily functions and sexual encounters - none of those scenes in this book added to the characters or moved the plot in any way and I was left wondering why I had to read such odd, gross scenes.

I'll keep traveling because I'm desperate to know more about Midworld and what the hell is up with the Tower. I'm hoping the series gets more interesting though. ( )

The Drawing of the Three starts a few hours after the ending of The Gunslinger. Roland is still on his quest for the dark Tower.

In the course of this story, Roland gets two companions. He visits their world on three different occasions and times using three doors he finds standing on their own miles from each other. That would be the sum of it, but this being a Stephen King's work, you know you can expect a lot more.
While I hated Detta with a passion and found Eddie's naiveté annoying at times, I really liked the story itself. And Roland, of course. ( )

The amazing second chapter of the Dark Tower series guides our hero Roland to seek 3 companions from our world into his "world that has moved on". Full of great personal struggles and epic battles for survival, The Drawing Of The Three is sure to draw you in. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To Don Grant, who's taken a chance on these novels, one by one.
First words
The gunslinger came awake from a confused dream which seemed to consist of a single image: that of the Sailor in the Tarot deck from which the man in black had dealt (or purported to deal) the gunslinger's own moaning future.

(Prologue)
Three. This is the number of your fate.
Quotations
The horror was a crawling thing which must have been cast up by a previous wave. It dragged a wet, gleaming body laboriously along the sand. It was about four feet long and about four yards to the right.
Flip-flop hippety hop, offa your rocker and over the top, life's a fiction and the world's a lie, so put on some Creedence and lets get high.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451210859, Paperback)

After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea—each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her. And in 1977, he encounters Jack mort, Death, a pusher responsible for cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the ka-tet of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely?

Roland is drawn through a gateway of time and space into the drug-and-crime-ridden world of the twentieth-century to battle a dark power determined to prevent his search for the Dark Tower.
